IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE FOURTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT, IN AND FOR DUVAL COUNTY, FLORIDA CASE NO.

:16-2010-CF-8579-AXXX-MA DIVISION: CR-G STATE OF FLORIDA

vs. MARISSA ALEXANDER, Defendant

STATE’S MOTION TO MODIFY OR REVOKE BOND The State of Florida, by and through the undersigned Assistant State Attorney, hereby moves this Honorable Court for an Order Revoking Defendant’s bond in the instant case. In support of the instant Motion, the State submits the following: (1) On November 27, 2013, Defendant was released by this Court on bond in the instant case, with the Court noting that it was “not this court’s customary practice to allow continued pretrial release for defendants who commit a crime while they are out on bond awaiting trial” (as Defendant had done). Defendant was given a series of special conditions, which the court called “stringent,” most notably including the provision that Defendant (paragraph #4) “remain on home detention.... and will not be allowed to leave her residence except for court appearances, medical emergencies, and to satisfy any requirements” of her pretrial services programs (such as providing a drug test). (2) Beginning December 6, 2013 (mere days after being released), and continuing on multiple dates (December 6, twice on Dec. 9, Dec. 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, and Dec. 20, 2013) (nine days in a 14day span), Defendant repeatedly flouted the above-referenced conditions. She did so in order to, inter alia, go shopping for clothes; ferry family members to and from such places as the hair shop and airport; -1C:\Users\difranza\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\3BQSVIXJ\Alexander Revoke.doc
